Once society progresses to a certain technical level, they need to learn ways to cope with its technology. In many ways, the gun control movement is a form of neo-ludditism. They imagine that the clock can be turned back, that firearms can be eliminated, and that bit of technology purged completely from our culture.
It is a fantasy and a delusion to hold such a view. Today I ran across this set of pictures of firearms that were seized by the Russian Army in Chechnya. They are all home made. The gun control movement always makes the false assumption that firearms are a highly complicated technology. They are not. They’ve been around half a millennium and aren’t going away. Take a look at the photo gallery, and next time someone tell you that banning all guns would actually eliminate them, show it to them, and make them understand how wrong they are.
